True Puppy Love

A pretty girl playing with her new puppy dog.

This was my first photo that I was truly proud of. I liked it so much, that I fell in love with this girl for a couple weeks (in a puppy-dog-love kind of way). :blush:

Thanks, I thought so too. (I updated its description).

(Oh, I don't see your fav, maybe the upgrades screwed it up?)

Everything about this image is good. The composition, the angel, the clarity. The background is blurred perfectly, so the background accents the subjects without drawing attention from them. The red leash just stands out and becomes the eyes central focus, pulling together the rest of the picture.

Thanks, I appreciate the comments. I'm really happy with the picture (which is why it is feature) - I've been trying really hard to find pictures as captivating as that one, but it's really hard. In any case, thanks for the kind words. :)

I really like this. there should be more shots like this on dA- people would cheer up alot. :) thanks for sharing!
ps Did you ask the girl for the photo or was it pure candid?

I did ask if I could take pictures of her, since I was shooting with a long telephoto zoom and I didn't want to seem like a voyeur. That said, I hung way back and just let her play with her dog. None of it was posed.

It'd be so much easier if I was a girl. I should write a journal entry about it.

I don't think you get lucky, I think you just have a wonderful eye. Keep up the great street shots, even if people look at you like you're psychotic. :)
